The fog can be a mixed blessing though... sometimes it means that the conditions at the top (above the clouds, depending on what the weather is doing) are spectacularly awesome.

here are two photos for your perusal. both of these photos are from the same trail (different spots, though) atop Rendzevous mtn at JH.

IT's pretty rad when the fog is just settling right in the middle of the mountain, because he conditions are spectacular above that, however you still have to ride 20 seconds through the thick of it where you can't see more than 15 ft in front of you.
